My graphic designer and I developed the font used in the Hope pattern especially for book folding. The elegant, classic-style letters are large enough to read easily, but they have page counts low enough to make them quicker to fold.
If you're new to the art of book folding, begin by downloading and reading "Traditional Book Folding: a Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide." You'll receive a free PDF file of this 68-page e-book (electronic book) with your purchase of the Hope pattern. I wrote the e-book especially for beginners. It contains my simple, straightforward methods that will take you from novice to book folding expert. It includes 3 free patterns to get you started on the road to book folding success: Rabbit, Petite Heart, and Ice Skate.
Upon payment, you'll be able to download both the Hope pattern and the e-book, so you can begin folding right away. The pattern includes a photo of the completed book. You may print the pattern as many times as you want to fold it. You may also print the e-book. Compatible with both PC and Mac, the PDF files display well on tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. They may not display well on the small screen of a smartphone.
I personally design and test-fold all of my patterns. The photos in this listing show the actual book that I folded using the Hope pattern. I used the methods that I teach in "Traditional Book Folding: a Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide."
Although you may not sell or distribute my e-book and patterns, you may sell any book(s) you fold using my e-book and patterns.
